HEALTHY and SAFE HALLOWEEN

Halloween is an enjoyable time of year. Children can express their creativity and dress up as their favourite character. They also enjoy collecting Candy!
In order to help keep children safe during “All Hallow’s Eve” consider the following safety tips.

  • Children must have their parents check their Halloween candy when they get home. Inspect the treats to make sure the candies are unopened and in their original wrapping. Explain to children that they should not accept anything that is not commercially wrapped.
  • Wash fruit thoroughly.
  • Did You Know? FASD

    It is estimated that 9 in every 1,000 babies born in Alberta are born with FASD (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder).

    FASD is caused by a woman drinking alcohol during pregnancy. Alcohol in the mother’s blood passes to the baby through the umbilical cord. There is no known safe amount of alcohol during pregnancy or when trying to get pregnant. There is also no safe time to drink during pregnancy. Alcohol can cause problems for a developing baby throughout pregnancy, including before a woman knows she’s pregnant. All types of alcohol are equally harmful, including all wines and beer.

    Are You Ready for Back To School

    Are you sending your child to their first day of school? Have you experienced sending your child back to school several times? A stress free and successful transition from summer vacation to the daily regular routine of school may be accomplished by following a few tips.

    Teaching Moderation

    Family and friends play a significant role in teaching children what drinking ‘safely and responsibly‘ looks like. Generally we don’t think about modeling acceptable drinking for children and youth. However we know that children and youth watch and learn from the adults around them. It’s important to realize that when you model and talk to children about moderate drinking you are influencing how that child perceives responsible alcohol consumption.

    A moderate drinker:

    • Considers an occasional drink to be a small, enjoyable, part of life.
